People are 'selflings': that's a good rather than a bad thing...so focus on yourself...regularly.

About that suffix 'ling': yes, often pejorative; but, not always.

So, cut other selflings some slack, as they will have to do for you if you are to achieve your desires.

If trust is at the heart of meaningful business relationships, insight is in the brain.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Trust, based on a history of past experiences, is not enough to guarantee business relationships contain value. When insight is added to trust, business relationships can thrive.

Winners seek solutions and think of better places. Losers agonize over problems and fear uncertainty.

The choice is yours.

Choose fixing the problem over fixing the blame.

May your molehills remain molehills and may your ego choose molehills over mountain climbing.

Better to climb mountains in your mind than on the back of your donkey-ego. 

Money- it can build quality character...but only if it is earned with effort, over time.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Money is an illustration of Value.

Money is an extrinsic reward...something we give and get in exchange for other things and actions of Value.

Extrinsic rewards are fleeting. So, money provides some short-term gratification then that gratification dissolves.

When extrinsic rewards are received too quickly or in too-large amounts the gratification can become like an overdose drug...and dysfunctional behaviour follows...hubris, inflated ego, etc.

When extrinsic rewards are received at a steady pace, in positive better-than-average amounts, the feeling of gratification is balanced...and this is comforting. One example of this comfort is the repeated confirmation that there is no need to fear poverty. And this sort of comfortable gratification feeds and grows self-confidence...which leads to enhancements of character.

In this way, money earned over time can help a person build quality character.

When you make a fine argument...shut up, listen, watch, & learn.

First, learn about the extent of the fineness of your argument. I mean, bring your thick skin and thin skull...and keep your ego under full control.

Was your argument really as fine as you thought?
